Hello Kiipers!

It’s been a rewarding month here at Kiip. Let’s find out why.

  1. The New York Times published an in-depth piece on Yahoo’s new ad strategy. While I wasn’t a big fan of their latest move, the industry is stronger when Yahoo is meaningfully innovating, so here’s to hoping they can lead the charge.

(By comparison, interstitial ads were averaging $2.99/1,000 impressions last fall.)

  3. Last but not least, are you Yo-ing?

Thanks for reading!
